I'm happy to release my latest scarf pattern I call, Evening Tide. It is in my store on Ravelry now and hopefully it will soon appear on the Knit Picks website as well.
I decided to not make this piece a cowl to give wearing and draping options but you certainly can seam the ends together. I do like to wear it doubled around.

I admit that I'm not always fond of cabling because I think that the finished product often looks too heavy on my body. I look like I'm wearing bulky ropes! But I think the lace techniques I used help lighten the piece beautifully.
Here's a closeup to see the lovely holes:
I thank my wise technical editor, Katherine Vaughan for checking the pattern over and making sure my chart matched my written instructions. I also thank my husband and photographer for taking me on location to Manteo, NC on the Outer Banks for this fun photoshoot!
